this morning on "world news now," trump and clinton's dinner date after the debate. the candidates let loose with some of the barbs and jokes they wish they could have said wednesday night. we'll have a play-by-play of the jokes that landed and the many that bombed. overseas, the u.s. suffered its first casualty and the fiercest fighting yet to reclaim mosul. the popular weapon that isis is employing to defend the stronghold. and the racial tensions in the nation's capital. a video shows police stopping an 18-year-old woman eating in the subway. see what happened after she was confronted. and will wolverine fans rejoice over a new trailer with hugh jackman reprising his control. the new trail for the third and final "wolverine" flick.
3:31 am
that's ahead in "the skinny," as we celebrate, this friday, october 21st. >> from abc news, this is "world news now." i want to show you a piece of video from the dinner. we're not going to play the sound. but you get to see the moment when a joke goes wrong. check out to the right of donald trump. >> facial expression priceless. >> absolutely, when he realizes, whoops. he wasn't supposed to say that. anyway, that's where we're going to start, of course. the candidates there, there was no surprise, that they were trading some attacks against each other. >> now, donald trump and hillary clinton sat on the same side as al smith at the charity smith dinner, next to each other in new york last night, just
3:32 am
separated by cardinal dolan. >> yes. >> and they traditionally delivered a light hearted roost. but this year, things got a little too political. and at some point, the crowd even booed. >> they did. at times, polite smiles vanished, as candidates look at explosive topics. it's supposed to be an event with self-deprecating speeches. and donald trump and hillary clinton were deprecating, but at each other's expense. >> but donald is as healthy as a horse. you know, the one that vladimir putin rides around on. >> i called hillary a nasty woman. after listening to hillary rattle on, and on and on. i don't think so badly of rosie o'donnell anymore. >> reporter: every four years, the al smith charity dinner brings together the presidential candidates for some levity. >> nice to finally relax and to wear what ann and i wear around
3:33 am
the house. >> i felt really well-rested after the nice, long nap i had in the first debate. >> reporter: but from the very start, it was clear, this year's duo was different. with only the archbishop of new york separating them, there was no handshake and little to no small talk. even when the cardinal wasn't sitting there. trump, speaking first, gets off a couple laughs at his own expense. >> some people think this would be tough for me. but the truth is -- it's true. the truth is, i'm actually a modest person. very modest. it's true. in fact, many people tell me that modesty is, perhaps, my best quality. >> reporter: but then, unleashes a barrage of attacks, sounding more like a trump speech. >> hillary is so corrupt, she got kicked off the watergate commission.
3:34 am
how corrupt do you have to be to get kicked off the watergate commission? pretty corrupt. >> reporter: the jokes, so personal, those in the room and those watching on tv, noticing the tone. our own tom llamas tweeting, this is taking a turn. that turn resulting in audible boos for trump. >> hillary believes it's vital to deceive the people by having one public policy and a totally different policy in private. >> reporter: then, in a room filled with high-ranking new york catholics -- >> for example, here she is tonight, in public, pretending not to hate catholics. >> reporter: clinton, losing that smile she initially had at the start of the speech. then, taking the podium for her own roast of trump. >> looking back, i've had to listen to donald for three, full
3:35 am
debates. and he says i don't have any stamina. that is 4 1/2 hours. i have now stood next to donald trump longer than any of his campaign managers. >> reporter: some of her attacks, also receiving a smattering of boos. >> donald looks at the statue of liberty and sees a four. maybe a five, if she loses the torch and tablet and changes her hair. >> reporter: but in the end, while they may not have made peace with each other, they did eventually shake hands. but the cardinal mentioned afterwards that it was so icy being between the two of them during that. >> i would not want that seat. the clinton campaign is enjoying a little windfall before election day. the clinton's pro pact had its best month, raising $25 million in september.
3:36 am
$6 million of that money, came from a single donor. a billionaire investor in florida. the clinton campaign spent about $83 million last month. while the trump camp shelled out $70 million. we learned the names of those two americans killed this week. sergeant dunk rhiny, of fairview, illinois, was visiting that base when he was shot and killed by a lone gunman. the other man has been identified as michael sauro of oklahoma. he was working with the u.s. army. an american civilian working for iraqi forces was killed by a roadside bomb. the first u.s. casualty since the operation started. the pentagon has warned all along that special apps troops could be killed or injured. and they say roadside bombs or ieds pose a special danger because isis fighters have had plenty of time to plant them. >> there's days when we're going to impose our will. and there's days the enemy gets a vote. he's going to come out on top.
3:37 am
this is a big operation. in a long war. >> we're learning this morning that isis fighters are claiming they stormed a government compound in the northern city of kirkuk. and witnesses report hearing heavy gunfire and explosions from two police compounds. local officials are denying that any government buildings have been seized. and the advance on mosul is creating another problem. the united nations predicts as many as 100,000 people will flee mosul, seeking refuge in syria. aid groups warn that that could overwhelm camps there. the environment department is being blamed for a late reaction to the flint water crisis. a watchdog's interim report shows they had the ability to intervene seven months before it actually declared an emergency. the drinking water was tainted by lead after it changed providers. the e.p.a. stepped in as soon as they realized the city and state were failing to address the problem. washington, d.c. transit
